Skype Journal: "Security, Skype and the Blackberry"

With the rise of new Skype clients for the Blackberry, such as iSkoot and IM+, one of the obvious questions raised by bloggers (including myself) was “what about the security?” Particularly since you have to give the Blackberry client your Skype username and password, essentially giving the client (and its developers) full access to your Skype account. Well, Jim Courtney over at Skype Journal also writes a good bit about Blackberries as well as Skype download, and posted his response to the issue on Friday: “Security, Skype and the Blackberry“.

I still suffer a lingering uncertainty, but I’ll admit that Jim’s digging does seem rather persuasive.
